Johann Zarco (Ajo Motorsport Kalex) claimed a brilliant victory in the Honda-powered Moto2 race held in Catalunya, Spain overnight.

Steadily working his way forward from fifth on the first lap to bravely snatch the lead from reigning champion Tito Rabat (Estrella Galicia 0,0 Marc VDS Kalex) on the last lap at Turn Five.

Zarco held on to score his second win of the year by 0.4 seconds from Alex Rins (Paginas Amarillas HP 40 Kalex), who inherited second place when Rabat ran wide at Turn Ten on the final lap. Zarco now leads the title chase by 40 points from Rabat, after achieving six successive podiums.

"It‰Ûªs been a perfect weekend." Zarco admitted. "All the time we kept to our target of preparing for the race, so I was strong enough to target victory.

"I got pushed wide at the first corner but I kept calm and kept my energy. I knew I could do it and step by step I closed the gap. The team is giving me a great bike so I can be confident, but the season is still very long.‰Û
